How is Trivest Different?

We Preserve Your Culture

It’s our job to elevate your business, not to change it. As opposed to parachuting in team members to dictate your day-to-day, Trivest serves as active board members that allow management teams the flexibility to operate. We offer private equity solutions that allow you to remain in the driver’s seat throughout our partnership, providing founder and family owned businesses with the capital needed to accelerate their growth.

We’re an Honest Partner

If you’re looking for a fair and honest partner in growth, then Trivest could be the right fit for your company. Our dedicated teams partner with you to grow your company, utilizing our financial capital and network of resources to build a stronger business with lasting value. As opposed to stripping your company of its identity, we join forces with founders to amplify their voice in the marketplace.

We Add Value

Our investments go well beyond capital to transform founder and family-owned businesses into profitable, long-standing companies. Here’s how we help:

  • Manage multiple existing shareholders
  • Streamline entry into new market verticals
  • Make introductions to grow your business
  • Infuse funds to grow teams & equipment

Dedicated Funds. Dedicated Teams.

Trivest Mid-Market Funds

The firm’s largest to date, Trivest Fund VI is a $630 million fund making control, or majority, investments in founder and family-owned businesses in the middle market. We help founders transition to their next phase of personal and professional growth with confidence and peace of mind.

Trivest Growth Investment Fund II

Following the success of TGIF I, a $225 million non-control fund, a follow-up TGIF II at $435 million closed at the end of 2019. TGIF invests in fast-growing businesses with founders looking to retain a majority stake in the company. Even with a minority stake, Trivest’s full resources are put into each investment.

Discovery Fund

Our new Discovery Fund gives Trivest unparalleled flexibility and a new avenue of growth for an underserved dimension of founders. Trivest Discovery Fund is a $235 million control fund that invests primarily in small, successful companies within fragmented industries that have enormous potential to scale.
